Congratulations Commenter #9, Beth F! You are the winner of the September apron.
Thank you to everyone who participated — there was a big group this time.
For October’s apron, I am planning to make this cute Betsey Johnson apron from the 70s, but there are some competing projects: recreating the 1970s iconic jacket worn by Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan for Emily’s Halloween costume (just ordered the fabric); making 120 red and black crepe paper roses, and a large paper mache gargoyle for Emily’s Goth-themed 30th birthday bash in November (30 flowers completed); and finally creating 40 “rustic winter wonderland” centerpieces using white crepe paper flowers for a local charity event that we support, also in November (only one sample arrangement made). Of course, there are also Christmas gifts to be made, so I’m afraid there may not be much quilty stuff going on in the Gray home for the next few months.
